Jose, Can't You See?

Jose, can't you see
what you're asking is wrong
since you live in our land
and enjoy all that's free?

Why should we change the words
to our national song?
After all what we sing's
deeply rooted in history.

It is wrong to insist
(while you're raising your fist)
that this anthem of ours
isn't high on your list.

Jose, leave our Star Spangled Banner alone.
Sing its words as they are
or pack up and go home.

The above poem can be sung to the tune of The Star Spangled Banner.

Is this what you would describe as the Christian approach to immigrant relations?

Excerpted and adapted from the song Illegal Alien by Genesis:

Its no fun being an illegal alien

Consideration for your fellow man

Would not hurt anybody, it sure fits in with my plan

Over the border, there lies the promised land

Where everything comes easy, you just hold out your hand

Keep your suspicions, I’ve seen that look before,

But I aint done nothing wrong now

So don’t tell anybody what I wanna do

If they find out you know that they’ll never let me through, because

Its no fun being an illegal alien, I tell ya

Its no fun being an illegal alien

Sunday Rhymes & Reasons
Published June 4, 2009

Sunday Rhymes and Reasons is a compilation of inspirational poetry by America's pastor/poet laureate, Greg Asimakoupoulos. In this, his third volume of poetry, Pastor Greg paints word pictures that portray both the struggle and fulfillment that define a life of faith. His repertoire of rhymes celebrate rite-of-passage occasions like birth, baptism, marriage and death as well as the major holidays of the church and culture. It is a volume that illustrates the poet's love of words and of popular culture. The author dips his brush into a paint box of hubris, humor and honesty.

"Gloria and I have been encouraged by word pictures from Greg's pen that have celebrated both our ministry and God's presence in our world."Bill Gaither, Gospel music composer/performer

"Gifted poet Greg Asimakoupoulos is a dear friend of our family. His poetry blesses, comforts, entertains, and provides inspiration for every season of life."Natalie Grant, singer/songwriter/recording artist
